New Century Hotel Ningbo
Ranked #28 of 784 Hotels in Ningbo
Reviewed June 24, 2012

Recently stayed here for 3 nights for business trip in June 2012.

The staff are friendly and their english sufficient for checking in and out.
The room was clean and comfortable, no complaints there.
The gym was equipped with new gear that was barely used.
Breakfast selection is very good and they split up the area into smoking/non-smoking.

Can't comment on the surrounding area I was fortunate enough to be taken out by colleagues who live in Ningbo.

No negatives but to me nothing special, just an average 4 star hotel.

We had a drama when checking in, the deal that we booked included breakfast for two people, daily. They tried to give us one breakfast for one person on one day only! After much angst they finally realised their error but it took all afternoon to sort out. That aside, a nice enough hotel and the breakfast was very nice indeed fortunately, as there are very few eating options near the hotel. There is a supermarket pretty much across the road, and a restaurant called Sun Party across the road in the opposite direction which was quite good, but apart from that not much else. So we would get a taxi into town a couple of times a day to sightsee, shop and eat. The taxis are cheap (11 RMB each way thereabouts) so not really a big issue at all. The hotel staff that work on the door are always happy to run down to the street and get you a taxi, helping translate where you want to go if necessary, very helpful and useful. The room itself was nothing special, but clean and tidy so we were happy. The hotel gym and indoor swimming pool were fantastic, really well maintained and staffed.

After staying at the New Century in Qiandao Lake, we decided to check out the New Century in Ningbo. The hotel itself is not too bad, but the rooms are a bit dated. Nothing compared to the New Century in Qiandao Lake. The location is pretty convenient.

I had a colleague who is based in HK book this for me. It is in some ways a typical Chinese hotel, but the room was clean, the a/c worked, the breakfast was excellent, the safe good for my laptop(s!), the concierge helpful, the lobby welcoming, etc. etc.

The internet was fast and free, everything in my room worked, the laundry was pretty cheap even for the same-day service. At RMB500 or so per night this is excellent value.

The location was fine for my purposes, although it's a 20 min walk from the real downtown area.

Spent 2 days in Ningbo; I go every 2-3 months for business, and have tried many of the "top" hotels, only to find something lacking.

The rooms are good sized, comfortable beds, clean, plenty of water pressure in the shower. Free computer and Internet on the executive floors (where I stayed) for only $94/night. Free breakfast and afternoon tea, too!

The bowling alley is a lot of fun, staff is courteous and speaks decent English (my Mandarin is pretty bad), good central location on the main East/West road through town.

About the only drawback I could think of was the pool as a bit crowded, but there was a convention in the hotel so they were nearly fully booked.

I know that in Ningbo I've now found a hotel I'll always stay at!
